A Performance Aboard the Intrepid photo
Riverhead Middle School student-musicians performed aboard the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier in New York City on April 17. The 100 young musicians were assembled from the school’s wind ensemble, directed by Annette Brewer; the chamber orchestra, directed by Regan Burns; the show choir, directed by Nadine Greenberg; and the jazz band, directed by Chrystal Crespo. After delighting onlookers with their performance, the students explored the Intrepid, toured the USS Growler submarine and learned about life as an astronaut aboard the space shuttle Enterprise.
